    Default AlphaFive export each record as HTML page

    I am not sure if this is the place for this... Exporting various fields with HTML content has saved me a lot of time and effort in populating some of my webpages with database content from Alpha. If I could export EACH record of a database as an individual .html file, it would really facilitate a personal project I am working on. Not being a programmer, any pointers about how to accomplish this would really be appreciated. Denny (I am using Alpha 4.03 build 230)

    This can be done easily in v5-it will print to HTML. email richard@alphasoftware.com if you want to get the beta to try this out. Release is in June.

    It can also be done in Ver. 4. I did it myself as an experiment a while back. If the records have the same format it is no big deal as the properties of the output file are constants.

    Use the write to file methods in the documentation. There is also an article at learnalpha.com.

    But if you are going to do a lot of this use Version 5.

    Thanks, Bill. A question: Can the process be automated in Alpha 4 so that if there are, say, 100 records, 100 individual HTML pages are created as 100 separate files?
